I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Meet The Original Force Of Nature
A 12-year-old boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.
I could not, would not, on a boat.
I will not, will not, with a goat.
I will not watch it in the rain.
I will not watch it on a train.
Not in the dark! Not in a tree!
Not in a car! You let me be!
I will not watch it in a box.
I will not watch it with a fox.
I will not watch it in a house.
I do not watch it with a mouse.
I do not like it here or there.
I will not watch it ANYWHERE!
I already watched this piece of shit, so take your DVD and go you twit.
I do not like The Lorax, Sam, so pack up your line of crap and scram!
Film #15 of the June Challenge
There once was a land of wood
where hollies bloomed like nothing else could
In it sat a man, quite the shnook
In his hands was a children's book
This man was an executive of 35
or so this author might contrive
He was a man of astonishing greed
From piles of money he would feed!
He did not understand the words of the book
it was why he did not even own a Nook.
But his was a job that did not require knowing how to read
All he had to do was lead.
So he enlisted several men
to make a film for children of ten
It would not be short, it…
The Lorax is another example of a Dr. Seuss’ film adaptation that has failed to capture the charm of the book. They’ve taken a simple and timely fable and turned it into a loud and garish bore that labours on its environmental message whilst failing to actually entertain its audience. The story centres on a 12-year-old boy who escapes the confines of his artificial city - Thneedville - to find a real tree in order to impress the girl of his dreams. There he meets the reclusive Once-ler who tells him the story of The Lorax, the guardian of the forest, and how Thneedville came into being.
Dr. Seuss’ cautionary tale about greed and environmentalism is buried somewhere in this…
Bad memories in my life:
Getting made fun of by Erin Olsen in 8th grade.
Having surgery at a hospital.
The music in The Lorax.
Vibrant and colorful, but oh-so-unfunny! I can't honestly recall a single moment where The Lorax made me laugh. Not even a hearty chuckle or a related thought of amusement. And clearly I'm not alone in being underwhelmed by this film.
I've never read any of the children's books by the beloved Dr. Seuss, but I can scarcely imagine this doing any kind of justice to the original story. It means well I'm sure, but the eco-friendly message at its core holds no subtlety whatsoever, while simulatenously struggling to be hip, in an obvious attempt to keep the tweens from reaching for their cell phones.
They overdo it bit also with the inherent bubbliness; sharing similarities with what often feels like…
What am I doing with myself?
This film takes the charm out of Dr. Seuss' Lorax and replaces it with spoon-fed awfulness for a contemporary audience who have little to no concept of naturalness. It's all so commercial, and I'm so over it.
Animations good but the pace is so fast it feels like a rush.
Leave Dr. Seuss alone.
A kids' film which ought only to be watched by kids, to be honest, but it was okay. I get why a fandom sprung up around the Once-ler, sort of - the character is pretty much the only thing in the film that's interesting or entertaining if you're older than, say, 11 (and from an adult perspective, the Lorax and the animals are actually really irritating, which doesn't help with the film's ~message).
NB, the soundtrack is addictive. I haven't been able to get 'How Bad Can I Be' and 'Thneedville' out of my head for what seems like weeks. After finding the soundtrack on Spotify I also became addicted to the longer version of 'This is the Place' and…
It had beautiful and vibrant colors
I never read the book itself but it all I could say is meh , it was okay.
My review -- this film is now at Hollywood cinema Norwich UK, it is a good film with a good storyline but with that being said I must admit the underlying message throughout this film, can be interpreted as a little bit strong in my unbiased opinion. The comedy value is very comical throughout and now on to the visual effects, the computer animation is absolutely breathtaking especially Danny DeVito as [The Lorax] great work on this character and Danny DeVito is perfect for this character. Now on to the one and only Betty White as [Grammy Norma] this actress very much makes this film interesting and she very much is the tempo controler in this project flawless work from this actress. So would I recommend this film? Yes, but with a comment, I have no idea why they made the underlying message so transparent.

Danny DeVito genial. Ed Helms, Jenny Slate y Rob Riggle bien.
Las canciones están bonitas y no son muchas.
El tema esta muy bien para los niños, también para todo mundo.
Si acaso peca de querar disfrazas a los minions como animalitos del bosque.
